(Sugesstion) new media detected scan
« on: August 27, 2014, 05:31:11 PM »

I would like to suggest a new feature when you plug in new media like a flash drive or something  there should be an option to scan the media before windows Auto discovers.

I moved from Kaspersky to avast because i was at a LAN and Kaspersky used 50% of my i7 2600K. i Like the scan that is performed before autodiscover.
I don't know if  avast already does this.
I f there is a virus on the new media avast stop it from running if it is activated  during the auto discover

There is no way to scan media before it is recognized.
What is not there can't be scanned  ;)
